We are looking to buy a home in either the Central bucks or Council Rock school district. My husband works in NJ so the commute time is important. We have 2 children in elementary school, one with an IEP for autism. Sports programs and special education are important factors.
CR would be a shorter commute but I have read that it can be a little "keeping up with the Joneses", stories of those looking down on others over money. We have met a few families from this area and this doesn't seem to match though.
CB would add about 20 minutes (I think) to his commute but seems to be more rural. I would love a little bit of land, maybe an acre, in a quiet little town. Doylestown seems to match that.
I don't want to rule out council rock over a few stories that may be untrue. Buying a home in an new area is unnerving. can anyone share their thoughts on the two areas?

I would chose Doylestown. There is so much to do and the downtown is AMAZING. Easy access to New Jersey. I don't have any experience with Council Rock, but I can say that the people of Doylestown are generally very friendly people. It's a Mayberry type place, in my opinion. You really can't go too wrong in Bucks County, with maybe one or two exceptions. Not sure where in New Jersey you will need to commute to, but New Hope is another nice town. And right on the Delaware River.
